From Last Night: Smackdown in Crazytown

AUGUST 4, 2015
Here, are promised, are some pieces done last night. About 28 posted in two hours.  The debate was maddeningly difficult to listen to and draw on for news. There was one big story here.  In a country burning with problems these "leaders" couldn't think of one of them to talk about. Benghazi, Planned Parenthood and Social Security are not on any person's agenda, unless you are tuned to the extreme right echo-chamber of Fox and crackpot radio. And of course that's who this was geared to. The problem though, for the GOP: millions of other people were looking in. And what they were seeing was not pretty. Thanks to Frank Reynolds, Annie Shields, Richard Kim, Roane Carey and Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation and especially Lisa Reist, my intrepid assistant who really made this happen.
